Back from the United Yo-Yo Contest

I spent the weekend in St Louis at the United Yo-Yo Contest. I lived in STL for a year and it was good to come back for a quick visit. The contest was rad. I was a sponsor and judged the fixed axle throwdown that happened after the main events were over. I met a lot of rad people too.

While I was in town I got to hang out with Kyle Nations, one of my favorite modern responsive yo-yoers, and a bunch of other rad folks. I even got breakfast at a chess themed diner inside the chess museum.

 

Some Black and White Music Videos

Here’s a collection of great music videos with no connection other than they are in black and white.

 

Cracked Screen Wallpaper for iPhone X

I dropped my iPhone one too many times, so it was time to finally upgrade. Before I ditched my iPhone 6, I captured one last photo of the screen and converted it into this wallpaper you can download and use on your iPhone X (or most other phones). I think it looks particularly cool with the perspective mode on.

I’ve also created a few other broken screen wallpapers throughout the years, like this one I made from Christine’s phone.

Musicians performing Aphex Twin’s “Avril 14th” on various instruments

I somehow stumbled onto a slew of performers covering Aphex Twin’s “Avril 14th” and I had to share them with you! In this collection you’ll hear covers performed on Gameboys, pedal steel guitars, harps, modular synths, vibraphones, upright bass, kalimba, and more!

This collection is also available as a playlist on Youtube here.
